Bill Gates comes out in favour of totalitarian socialism
(NaturalNews) The radical Left in America must sense that, with the end of Barack Obama’s presidency will come a dramatic reversal of all he (and they) accomplished in regards to the advance of socialist “utopia.” That’s the only way to explain their unabashed and very public push to double down on more of the same as he approaches his final year in office, though in doing so they will forever mark themselves as enemies of freedom and liberty.
In recent days, as reported by Breitbart News, the penultimate Lefty globalist (and depopulation advocate) Bill Gates gave his full-throated support for anti-constitutionalism and anti-democracy when he actually said that, despite numerous examples to the contrary, only socialism could “save” our planet from – wait for it – “climate change.”
In a wide-ranging interview with liberal stalwart The Atlantic, Gates claimed that “representative democracy” has failed, the private sector (where he made his billions) is “inept,” and only bigger government led by China and the United States will ever amass the power to save the world from climate change (who will save us from these climate change hoaxers is another question needing answered).
Oh, the hypocrisy – and ideologically driven ignorance
At the same time, if you read the interview (and you should because it’s always good to know who is conspiring to steal your liberty and how they plan to do it), Gates also confusingly heaps scorn on green technology solutions, while still insisting that more of them are needed (on a scale that dwarfs the Manhattan Project) if we are to save ourselves and the planet (though even he admits the problem has been overblown by environmentalists, for political – and fundraising – gain).
If you’re baffled by all that, you’re surely not alone. Let’s parse what Gates had to say and learn a bit about how his mind works.
First off, Gates has no tolerance or patience for anyone who dares state the obvious – that climate change is an abject hoax. So right off he puts the lie to the claim that Lefties are the most “tolerant” of the human species. He also makes it plain, again, that liberals have no desire to debate on the merits of ideals; rather, they want to impose their solutions.
Gates also has no penchant or tolerance for Republicans and conservative politicians, which is par for the liberal course – no surprise there. But he doesn’t bother to explain why he thinks they are wrong. Per The Atlantic (whose reporter didn’t bother to press Gates on why he thinks this):
He didn’t evince much patience for the argument that American politicians couldn’t agree even on whether climate change is real, much less on how to combat it. “If you’re not bringing math skills to the problem,” he said with a sort of amused asperity, “then representative democracy is a problem.”
Sure, Bill. Only for a tyrant.
In other words, we are the problem because we like our modern society too much
Next, this gem. Though Gates made his vast fortune in what once was one of the least-regulated sectors of the U.S. economy, he has no faith in the free market economic model that provided him with billions and made the U.S. the No. 1 economy in the world. He also doesn’t think the free market (him) is much for innovation:
“Yes, the government will be somewhat inept,” he said brusquely, swatting aside one objection as a trivial statement of the obvious. “But the private sector is in general inept. How many companies do venture capitalists invest in that go poorly? By far most of them.”
Not really much of a shocker there, Bill. It’s been that way since the beginning of time and certainly since the country’s founding; most businesses do fail, but that’s because most of them are attempting to market a product that not enough people want to spend money on. Also, that big government you excuse is innately over-regulatory, adding even more to the difficulty of building a viable business.
